Our Health & Safety management is very strict. We aim for zero risk accident management in all departments and activities at Globe Union.

This applies to:

Our Company recognizes the importance of protective measures for the workplace and for individual employees. We contract professional vendors to maintain and service cargo, electrical and firefighting equipment, and carry out safety inspections.

Managers are required to follow and enforce all equipment safety and care regulations, which are publicly posted for employee information. 

All equipment used by the Company is rated the highest class among all enterprises in terms of safety and standardization. 

Electrical equipment complies with Article 9 of the Regulations for Electrical Technician and Power Facility Inspection and Maintenance Management, and is worked on in compliance with Regulations for Safe Electricity Usage.

For example, all circuit boxes are labeled with the warning “Do not open if you are not a professional circuit operator” in order to prevent electric shock hazards.

Similar compliance warnings are placed in all areas of our facility where there is potential to be exposed to danger if procedures are not followed carefully. 

In accordance with Article 15 of the Enforcement Rules of Fire Services Act, one 4-hour firefighting, emergency notification, and evacuation training drill takes place at least twice a year, and the local firefighting agency is notified in advance.

To ensure personnel and property safety, after working hours, working overtime, on holidays or at weekends, staff may only access the site under controlled conditions after checking in with the security guard . Security guards maintain and monitor alarm systems and respond to these promptly.

  • The Safety of External Contractors

Contractors are required to abide by safety management requirements, and provide operators with necessary protective equipment and devices.

The construction management department, safety management department, and 6S management department confirm that protection requirements are fulfilled to warrant construction before it begins.

They also carry out monitoring and inspection of the process, and accept work upon completion.

  • Environmental Protection from Pollution

The Administration Division issued a warning that the on-site water supply at our headquarters comes from groundwater that may have been contaminated in the past by heavy metals or other toxins; drinking it directly is now strictly prohibited and we have produced management guidelines to control water use.

To protect our employees from any possible ill-effects, the entire plant has now switched over to domestic tap water.

Drinking water now also has filtration equipment installed, to ensure that the water employees consume meets the highest possible standards for supporting their health and well-being. In order to monitor and evaluate employee health and identify possible causes for concern.

4. Fair and Equal Treatment

We believe all employees have a right to be treated fairly, and to enjoy work free from harassment or other poor behavior.

At headquarters, the employee welfare committee functions independently to handle matters concerning employee well-being. These arrangements all support employee rights to association and negotiation.

  • Actively Protecting Employee Rights

Our employee management policy complies with all relevant labor regulations. Management policies are updated to reflect regulatory changes as necessary to ensure that employee rights are protected, and regular employee communication ensures that employees understand Company operating principles.

Employee feedback is welcomed, and our Company uses email, monthly “Birthday Party” events, regular employer-employee meetings required by law, as well as briefings on current activities for the year and planning for the following year to keep employees up to date on company activities and plans.
